  • Really anything that has a fun layer, but…To heck with cajoling, influencing, convincing, and motivating. Create contexts for people where it is in their self interest to do what you want them to do. It works for them, and it works for you.

  • Professor Luis von Ahn, a winner of the MacArthur “genius grant.” ESP Gameaddresses the inability of today’s computers to identify random images. two anonymous players are matched online without any means of communicating. Both players are shown an image (for example, a flowering plant) while a clock counts down. The players must then type words that describe the image, such as “plant.” When both players have typed at least one word in common, they both score points. More importantly, the players have also unintentionally taught the computer that the picture contains a plant!More than 20 million labels have been harvested by the ESP Game in just a few years — the equivalent of several million dollars of free labor. Professor von Ahn estimates that just 5,000 people playing for a month could label every image on the web. Notably, Google has adopted the ESP Game and renamed it the Google Image Labeler, which anyone can play here.

  • What people tell us that’s good:They’re learning new featuresThey like competition with friends and coworkers, and competition motivates play (within Microsoft we hear a lot of hallway banter about people’s Ribbon Hero scores)What could be improved:If people play two challenges, they’re likely to play a lot of challenges; but we’re losing players before they finish two challengesonce players plateau or reach the max score, there’s nothing to keep them engaged94,852 Downloads (as of 5/12/2010)1,142 Facebook fans (as of 5/12/2010)120,000+ challenges played

  • Why you might care
    “I am more interested in entrepreneurs who are focused on the ‘video-gamification’ of other lines of business from education to ecommerce, advertising to health.  These areas seem less obvious, but offer more room for innovation. 
    (Bing Gordon, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers)
  • Why you might care
    “Gaming 3.0 is about leveraging game mechanics to re-invigorate other markets: …points, achievements, and leveling up… We can utilize game constructs in other industries which no longer monetize as effectively via macro-transaction or advertising.”
    (Tim Chang, Norwest Venture Partners)
